Calculating Time Needed to Electroplate 20 Microns of Nickel

CHEM-EPWOI5

One side of an aluminum electrode is exposed to a solution of $\textrm{NiCl}_2$. The electrode has dimensions of $40.0\textrm{ mm}$ by $200.0\textrm{ mm}$.

Assuming even electrodeposition, how long , in minutes, would it take to plate a $20.0 \mu\textrm{m}$ layer of $\textrm{Ni}$ on the electrode with a current of $2.00 \textrm{ A}$?

$\textrm{Ni}$ has a density of $8.912 \frac{\textrm{g}}{\textrm{cm}^3}$.
